CALL INTERPOL! A Condom Broke! (WikiLeaks Farce)

Given the breathlessness of U.S. media coverage, one would think that WikiLeaks’ Julien Assange was wanted for raping half the virgins in Sweden.

The reality is far less saucy. The New York Times summarized the charges against Assange: H/T Salon

According to accounts the women gave to the police and friends, they each had consensual sexual encounters with Mr. Assange that became nonconsensual. One woman said that Mr. Assange had ignored her appeals to stop after a condom broke. The other woman said that she and Mr. Assange had begun a sexual encounter using a condom, but that Mr. Assange did not comply with her appeals to stop when it was no longer in use. Mr. Assange has questioned the veracity of those accounts.

How many uncaptured war criminals are on Interpol’s target list? How many people accused of genocide? How many politicians are out and about who should be on the Interpol list for war crimes?

The U.S. government is busy screwing Americans and much of the world – and Interpol goes off hot and heavy seeking a broken condom culprit???

    But James…Uncle Sam doesn’t use one…

    Great having you on the show today.
    You don’t make the blind see – but you sure as hell take away their excuses.

    Brian, thanks for having me on your show! We had a fine time kicking the @#$$@# out of the WikiLeaks “scandal.”

    Every year, it becomes more of a struggle for me to maintain my idealism, but talking with you helps immensely.

    As far as the US government not wearing a wrap – one more benefit of Sovereign Immunity!

    Mr. Assange should take a hint from the Pope and consider switching brands. He was probably using those cheap North Korean recycled condoms.

    I’d be nervous about any condom advice contained in a book named, “Light of the World.”

    Drone Attacks mean never having to say you’re sorry.

    I note that the Old Grey Lady, now the Old Addled Grey Lady has the editor check with the White House to see what they can and cannot publish.

    Meanwhile , the only real thing these Wikipedia dumps show is that intel is generally pretty boring, between bouts of petty griping or gossip mongering.

    But then, it is there to “protect” us.

    Actually, I think some very good material is coming up to the surface. Most of the cables are useless – but — if even half of one percent contain some nuggets – fine by me.

    I figure the U.S. government must be calling in a lot of favors. Watching them thrash around in a desperate attempt to change the subject reminds me of a line from the movie North Dallas Forty, when Mac Davis’ character described someone as “fidgetin’ like a one-legged cat tryin’ to bury sh-t on a frozen pond”.

    That’s a great damn line!

    I wonder what the equivalent image would be for how Hillary Clinton is cavorting this past week…
